Today the postman came good for me, but we are still waiting on the yo-yo, oh dear indeed!
So if you have your copy of Quilt Now, you may have spotted my Oakshott tumbler 'Stacking Cups' baby quilt, it looks so lovely in print, even if I do so myself…
And I am so thrilled to be in such great company in this first edition. I am trying not to be biassed, but I think Katy has done a wonderful job, and the themed issues, if this one is anything to go by, are all going to look fabulous!
I would love to show you a few more shots, but all my pics were on that other hard drive, grrr! I will show off more when I get it back home.
Don't forget, there'll be a copy of the magazine for the winner of my blogiversary giveaway, and it will be in UK stores from Thursday.
So as if my head didn't have to be squeezed back out the front door to get down to school, what happened next, well…
You see that envelope up there? In there is a blogiversary card, from someone who RECOGNISED ME at the school gate!!! So everyone please wave hello to Jean!!
Meeting fellow enthusiasts of cutting up fabric and sewing it back together in real life is so great, (woo-hoo FQR weekend here we come!!), but when someone spots you and is lovely enough to come and say hello, it felt a little bit mad, and very much lovely!
And just in case anyone wants to pick me out of the crowd on the weekend, (before I get my official swap tag from my partner), I whipped up a temporary one, and the first tick off my Q4 FAL list, go me!
After deciding on the way I was going with it, I did a bit of a swift u-turn, (after cutting my fabrics, sods law), and snipped a little selvedge 'Hadley' from my DS stash, fused and top-stitched a collection of bits and bobs onto white Essex Linen and used some of my Hemingway Design print for the back and lanyard.
Fun punched hole, and job done…
Tomorrow, less me, more finishes!
